After being named to the Vatican's task force for the protection of minors against sexual abuse, Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago told the Chicago Tribune that Church leaders must remain humble in the process of helping victims and regaining trust.
"We must be humble by accepting what was done in the past and taking the shame that goes with it," Cupich told the Chicago Tribune March 2.
"There's never a moment in which we can say we have this all figured out," he added.
Cupich was the only U.S. cleric to be named to the task force, the mission of which is to assist bishops' conferences, religious institutes, and societies of apostolic life throughout the world in implementing child protection guidelines and putting in place the requirements of Pope Francis' 2019 motu proprio Vos estis lux mundi.
